This is my crew. we can't take pictures without someone crossing their eyes, crying, squirming, pulling hair or trying to escape. we run deep with crazy meltdowns, sibling rivalry and toy stealing. but deeper with love. this long weekend was a special one for us, and one that i finally had time to feel like i got to just be a mommy. just get lost, laugh, be silly, devour a vegan oreo milkshake and rub the whipped cream all over my babies faces.
moments like these are truly what defines motherhood to me.
Omg! we can't get enough of the royal festivities over here! who else has been watching?! 🙋👸although i don't love the word "commoner", because there is absolutely nothing common about #meghanmarkle , i do love that she represents a more relatable woman, and family dymanic. she, and her family dynamic are "complicated", just like the majority of the planet. we love what she's all about! happy wedding day @meghanmarkle_hd 💖💖💖#royalwedding
Did anyone else's kid say something totally hilarious about them in their mother's day card? 🙋🙈😂lol..cause mine did, have a watch. plus some fun behind-the-scenes of a week in our life.👆 click the link in our bio for the full video. this vlog also features some amazing peeps.. @mfvlogger@theavan@tagliani18#fivescompany
Being able to see him soar makes my heart beat fast. at a time when i struggle with knowing if what i'm doing is enough, or face mommy guilt... i see pictures like this and i see strength. vanessa and i always talk about how sports and activities, keeping the little ones busy is so important. it gives them purpose. teaches them drive and dedication. allows them to be free and own something for themselves. and we both truly believe can keep them on a positive path. but it also allows us as parents stand back and witness just how awesome they really are 💖
💚may you soar into your weekend!!!💚
